It's a fun movie for kids that isn't too horrible for adults
17 October 2019 | by mellkleckerismSee all my reviews

Honestly it's a good "Halloween time" movie to add as a filler. Considering it's originally in the German the, the lip sync isn't too terrible and there's not much that can be done about it (there's plenty of foreign dubbed movies on Netflix) The animation isn't too terrible either! Hoodwinked has academy acclaimed award winning voice actors and the animation on that was in the pits.
